Community protection notices have been issued to a ‘core group’ of antisocial drinkers in Camberwell Green.
Southwark Police say they have received a large number of complaints from residents fed up with ‘drunken brawls, shouting and swearing, littering and open urinating’.
Officers have upped patrols in the area and seized alcohol as well as issuing notices which – if breached – are a criminal offence.
In a separate incident, officers closed down a new pirate radio station that had popped up in Champion Hill.
The ‘illegal radio mast’ was taken down with council officers and regulator OfCom.
“If you see anyone on top of high rise roofs installing masts please call police immediately as criminals cause damage to buildings installing equipment and large radio masts,” said Dedicated Ward Officer Mark Saunders.
“This activity causes financial loss to the building’s owner to have removed and repaired whilst illegally broadcasting over the airwaves.”
